James Cameron is the kind of director who likes to revolutionize the industry he works in whenever he makes a movie. Shot entirely in a new format of 3-D motion-capture, his Avatar wowed audiences with its visual style and groundbreaking effects, and Cameron is poised to do it again. He announced today that Avatar 2 will be projected in 3-D, but audiences won’t need their glasses.
Hot off of musical heist caper Baby Driver, Ansel Elgort has already lined up his next project. The actor and EDM artist will be starring as a young mid-twenties John F. Kennedy, yes, that John F. Kennedy, in a movie about the former president’s bravery in the South Pacific during World War II.
Daniel Day-Lewis is primarily known for his method acting: it can take him years to fully prepare for a role, and he’s the kind of actor who really likes to immerse himself in the material. Remember when he had the Lincoln cast and crew and Steven Spielberg calling him Mr. President? Up until now, he’s never gone so method that he can’t get back out again, but if the rumors are true, his latest role might have inspired a career change.
Netflix has risen to the top of the pile when it comes to festival season acquisitions, the streaming giant cleaning up at this year’s Sundance, and poised to do the same at TIFF after causing Cannes to go into a tizzy. One of the funniest and most rave-reviewed films out of Sundance this year was Jack Black’s The Polka King, which starred Black as real-life Pennsylvania polka legend Jan Lewan, and Netflix has just snatched it up.
’Tis the season for a whole bunch of Sundance favorites to start cropping up in theaters near you, and amongst all the Bad Batches and Big Sicks this one small, understated drama shouldn’t be overlooked. In Columbus, John Cho and Haley Lu Richardson play out their own Lost in Translation: Two lost souls happen upon each other and strike up a connection in spite of their uncertainties about their futures.
Unsurprisingly, La La Land director Damien Chazelle is lining up quite a cast of actors who want to work with the latest Oscar-nominee, and his next film, First Man, which will star Ryan Gosling as Neil Armstrong, is quite a hot ticket. Today brings news that three great actors, Kyle Chandler, Corey Stoll, and Jason Clarke, have all joined the movie about NASA’s project to put humans on the Moon.
For all intents and purposes, every sign points to Michael Bay and the Transformers series going their separate ways after The Last Knight. Bay even wrote a goodbye letter to the franchise thanking everyone involved for five movies’ worth of explosions, robots fighting each other, and female characters introduced from the legs up. But there’s one person who thinks he might be faking it.
The end of one month means the start of another, which also means that new things are coming to a streaming platform near you. Netflix’s July instant releases are stacked, and include a few classic cartoon dinosaur movies, the premieres of a new Netflix original shows, and one Star Wars Story.
There are a few set staples of any high school movie: the scene where one character tours another character around the cafeteria and shows them who the jocks and the nerds are; the scene where one character has something mortifying happen to them and everyone laughs, preferably in a public space like the classroom or the gym; and, of course, a house party scene. Spider-Man: Homecoming, being a high school movie, obviously has at least the third option.
Sometimes Avengers: Infinity War feels like it’s just an excuse for a bunch of actors to have a giant get-together, film it, and add in some special effects later to make them all look cool. Like the shawarma post-credits scene from the first Avengers, but for two-plus hours. Today on set, two scientists, a doctor, and a librarian walked into a La Croix commercial… and made sure to snap a pic.
